It's all about the Kinetic Model

Probably the most significant difference between ProMax and other amine sweetening simulators is that the ProMax Electrolytic ELR package uses the TSWEET Kinetic Model to predict the absorption of CO2 by amines. Thus the column hardware parameters (diameter, tray spacing, weir height) are very important to the model since these parameĀ­ters are used to calculate the residence time used in the Kinetic Model. I am not aware of any other amine sweetening simulator that uses a kinetic model for CO2 absorption. To my knowledge, the kinetic model is unique to ProMax.
